Diversity Lottery

Diversity Lottery Immigrant Visa/Green Card

The Diversity Lottery provides immigration visas/green cards to individuals who are under-represented in the overall mix of immigrants coming to the United States. Each year several million people apply for a visa under this program. Only the winners in the lottery are notified.

People born in countries that send the most immigrants to the United States are not eligible to apply for the Diversity Lottery Visa Program. Remember that this is a lottery and you should not abandon other immigration options if you apply for the Lottery Program. The requirements for the Diversity Lottery Program are set forth below.
